The first time I heard Grammy Award winning produce Om’Mas Keith was in 2003. His production team Sa-Ra Creative Partners (which includes Shafiq Husayn
and Taz Arnold) had laced Pharoahe Monch with the beat to one of my favorite songs by him ever, “Agent Orange.” The muddy synth and thick drums buoyed Monch’s post traumatic confessional years before he would record PTSD.
Since then Keith and Sa-Ra have created music with everyone from Jay Z to Frank Ocean and dropped two albums, 2007’s The Hollywood Recordings and 2009’s Nuclear Evolution: The Age of Love.
Now RedBull TV will be premiering a documentary on the life and music of Keith entitled Across The Board.
“‘Across the Board’ provides a look at Keith’s astounding ability to bring out the creativity, passion, and emotion of some of today’s top musical talent, as well as detailing Keith’s struggles and successes of a life spent dedicated to making music.”
Watch the trailer above and tune in to RedBull TV on June 17th.
